Maintenance for the week of June 24:
• PC/Mac: No maintenance – June 24
• ESO Store and Account System for maintenance – June 26, 4:00AM EDT (08:00 UTC) – 12:00PM EDT (16:00 UTC)

This is either a BUG or a SCAM. You decide, ZOS.

There is a reddit thread going on right now about the new crown crates. NUMEROUS people have reported recieving the same exact item, bal foyen nix hound, in an ABSURD amount of crates. Reported numbers include 6/15, 9/15, 10/15, 12/15. Here on the forums, there are already several posts including one in this sub where someone claims to have gotten 15/15 of them.

@ZOS_GinaBruno Can we get a ping as to whether or not this is intended? I personally planned on purchasing up to 30 crates, but will not be spending a penny until this is confirmed as a bug, OR not at all if it is confirmed to be intentional.

    The amount of duplicates are insane this season. I got only 4 new items from my 2nd 15, 3 from the 3rd, and only 2 from the 4th. 20k crowns and not a single apex or hidden reward. Odds were nerfed to hell.

    I wasn't counting TBH but I got enough that it was noticeably higher than anything else dropping.

    And since they have the mods already closing threads on this one you can draw your own conclusions....

    Yeah, if ZOS closes this thread and doesn't address the Nix hound by the end of today, they can kiss my sub (2 years standing) goodbye as well as any future purchases of crown crates/crowns I might have made. I may be willing to buy into an RNG gambling system, but I will not continue to do so when the Odds are either getting increasingly worse due to dev input (common tactic in gambling scenarios like this, across multiple games), OR while the system is bugged.

    15 Crates, received the hound like 8 times. Also the season is crap, I thought they'd have more dwemer stuff, like a face mask yet only have one of the variations in the season I can buy with gems and it's the ugly af one. But how about those 3 lethal poison packs. I had around 3 of those

    Not buying crates until this addressed as with many others. These numbers are stupid. I hope they find a way to compensate everyone who purchased mass amounts of these Nyx Crates.

    lol maybe Nyx Crates were going to be next season and they got released early by mistake.

    They're not going to close this thread, but I doubt they'll respond that fast unless you can get Gina's attention (and pinging her doesn't help much... she gets a lot of pings).

    Not saying you're wrong. It's disappointing, and I'm going to be holding off on buying crates until I see this addressed. I'm just saying that you should be realistic in how quickly you expect them to turn it around.

    In the meantime, everyone should report this as a /bug. The more reports they get, the faster it will come to someone's attention.

    Even when it was just people opening the free crate that came with Morrowind pre-purchases the incredibly high drop rate for Nix Hounds was noticeable (I got 2 out of 2 crates - 1 EU and 1 NA), but it was hard to tell if it was really that unusual because we didn't have any info on the drop rates or even a full list of the contents.

    Fair enough haha just my wishful thinking for those who unfortunately wasted an insane amount of crowns for an army of Nyx hounds.

    I thought extra cards were supposed to contain a legendary or apex reward now? I got 6 extra cards and all superior rewards.

    I can also confirm that out of 30 crates I got 17 nix hounds. Also didn't get a single apex reward and only a single legendary. Last crown crate season out of 30 crates I got 3 apex and many legendary and hardly any duplicate items. Were these crates reverted to pre atronach crate release stats? I am very annoyed that I spent 11000 crowns on nix hounds and potions.

    Really glad I didnt buy any Clown Crates today

    Wish I could say the same. I want a refund but that'll never happen. Yes it's rng gambling but this crate season is by far the worst of any of them. Almost to the point of stealing.
